The crew behind Splendor in the Grass has announced that this year’s festival – also its 20th anniversary – will move from winter to spring year

The new edition of the festival will now take place from 19th until 21 November in the North Byron Parklands

At least this should make packing easier Plan for sunshine instead of cold nights and the impending rain potential!

Splendor’s three headliners – Gorillaz, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator – are still locked up and performing, arguably their first international shows since the pandemic

The rest of the lineup for Splendor 2021 has yet to be confirmed, but now that the new dates have been set we should keep our eyes peeled for more gossip from Camp Splendor

Splendor in the Grass ensure that their 20th anniversary is as big as possible

According to Splendor co-founders Jess Ducrou and Paul Piticco, Splendor was too difficult to run during its original July dates to be in line with current international border closings and restrictions

“We were hoping to bring you the Splendor 20th Anniversary Edition this July, but we cannot stage the event you know and love within the current restrictions,” they said

“Not a single festival in Australia has reached full capacity since March 2020 and the industry is currently operating at a fraction of the pre-COVID level”

All tickets purchased are still valid for the November event However, if you are no longer able to attend, you can do so from noon today until Wednesday, December 31 March, request a refund

Splendor is now celebrating its 20th anniversary next July and “intends to rebook as many of the 2020 artists as possible”
